Flaming Gorge

Well after the girls got back from camp, O's brother and their family came up for the night and stayed and then we went into SL.  We dropped the girls and Bman and KT off at my parents to stay for a week and a half. 

The next Saturday we went fishing all day.  First we went to Cottonwood and then we went to Flaming Gorge.  I have to tell you that the drive is just beautiful.  We even saw a ram crossing the road.  And I guess right now they are having open grazing up there which wasn't so bad going up but coming home in the dark we had to be careful not to hit any steer because they were black and hard to see.  There was a bit of rain so after that cleared we were in a great spot to see the rainbow over the Gorge, it was beautiful.

We went to the Sheep Creek Canyon area.  And are going to go back because the area we went to is a sockeye salmon spawning area and is now closed to fishing because of that.  It should be great to see all the red in the water with the fall changing foliage.

We did catch some trout both O and PT did.  And it was funny because they like the worms but only with the trout gravy on them.

The day was great and beautiful.  I love spending time with my guys.


Here is where I am going to Share those moments that just come whether it be night or day and we take the time to seize every opportunity-

Just a quick chuckle; I was putting my sons down for the night and little Bogan asked for another drink of water, and I said no you have already had a large glass and used the bathroom-he said oh yeah-so I chuckled and said haha your plans to stay awake have been foiled, and he said yeah Mom you folded my plans.

The other night my boys were playing with their legos and when I walked by, PT had made a pyramid and asked me where the little guy was that he had, I said I don't know? And then he showed me he had hidden it under the pyramid-I thought and then grabbed that moment- I went and got out the history book and opened up to the ancient Egypt era when pyramids were built and why it was similar to what he did. He was amazed at the significance. We read and read and learned about them for 2 days.
